Astrosoniq (sometimes spelled A5tro5oniq) is a band from Oss, Netherlands.

Each of their album covers features hair growing out of skin. Sometimes a woman, sometimes a man, or sometimes a circle of flesh surrounded by hair.[1]

Musical style[edit]

Their musical style is characterized by extremely psychedelic guitar riffs. The result is stoner rock with a space flavor. They integrate sound clips from old movies, Wonder Woman episodes and other sources. Most continue the themes of fantasy and space, but some discuss the music itself.

Musical influences[edit]

The band cites classic heavy rock artists as their influences, which can be seen in the heavy guitar riffs and drums.
